2014 Black Male Achievement Social Innovator: Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education
July 10, 2013
At the Maynard Institute we are so excited and honored to announce that we are one of seven organizations selected for the 2014 class of Black Male Achievement Social Innovators in recognition for our work helping the media more accurately and credibly cover African American males.
As a member of the inaugural class we will receive 12 months of one-on-one capacity-building support, be introduced and showcased to local and national funders, and receive targeted support to increase our national leadership and impact in the field of black male achievement.
The Leadership & Sustainability Institute for Black Male Achievement (LSI) is a national membership network that seeks to ensure the growth, sustainability, and impact of leaders and organizations across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors committed to improving the life outcomes of black men and boys through systemic change.

Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
